. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too insular, that you don't socialize enough. >> this, of course, is one of the great myths of governing, that intractable problems, political problems, can somehow be solved over a card game and a couple of drinks. that has never, ever been the case nor will it ever be the case. >> i like speaker boehner personally. and you know, when we went out and played golf we had a great time. but that didn't get a deal done in 2011. >> the president actually had to remind the media that congressional behavior is the result of democracy. >> now if the american people feel strongly about these issues and they push hard and they reward, or don't reward
successful that even john boehner will consider becoming a democrat. after all, we have a lot in common. he is a person of color. although not a color that appears in the natural world. leaders of the republican party, they call the passage of this bill armageddon. end of freedom as we know it. so after i sign the bill, i looked around to see if there were any asteroids falling or sudden cracks opening up in the earth. turned out it was a nice day. they said we needed to triple the border patrol. well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol or they'll want a higher fence. maybe they will need a moat. maybe they want alligators in the moat. lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings which have just gone down. but that's politics. it doesn't bother me. besides, i happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth. he seems all-american, but if you heard his real middle name, tim hosni pawlenty, what a shame. governor romney has said that he hoped a similar version of this plan from last year would be introduced as a
think part of the reason speaker boehner and others, we got ourselves into trouble we listened too much to harry reid and the president. we should do what we believe in, what we were elected to do and pass it over to the united states senate. the senate needs to do its job and they haven't. >> greta: it's interesting, secretary geithner sent a letter to speaker boehner about the debt and it's interesting, it says congress should act as early as possible to extend the following authority. the reason i thought it was interesting, no place in the letter does he say the president has the authority to raise it unilaterally. there's no sort of-- maybe there was no reason to include it in, but i thought that it was interesting it was silent. >> and the democrats have this crazy idea we print this multi-trillion dollar coin and that would supposedly make everything go away. the reality is, we have to stop spending money we don't have and you've got to attack entitlement reform and attack discretionary spending. >> greta: clock is ticking down. congressman always nice to see you. >> thanks. >> g
, and john boehner will be headed over there. first, president obama began with the slogan hope and change. then he got a jolt of washington reality. we'll take a look back at the some times rocky road of the first term. >> we've seen that crowd building, craig. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the crowd, indeed, has been growing throughout the morning. say hello. say hello. before you get from the u.s. capital behind me, the less it is like an inauguration, the more it is like a block party/picnic. folks from texas, buffalo, new york, who have said several times this is far from cold. i do want to -- where are you from? >> from new jersey. >> reporter: from new jersey. first inauguration? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: what brings you out? >> obama all the way. >> reporter: how about you? where are you from? >> trenton, new jersey. >> reporter: oh, this is all jersey here? i should have known by the rowdiness. and where are you guys from? >> atlanta, georgia. >> reporter: from atlanta. sorry about the falcons but welcome to d.c. >> it's all good. thank you. >> reporter: first

boehner, the republican majority leader, eric cantor. the people that he will be doing battle with, just after this is done. but this is the moment for unity. and talking to the president's aides about what he hopes to convey in this speech, he will acknowledge the deep divisions, the deep political divisions, that dominated so much of his first term. he'll talk about, despite those divisions, we have to come together to do what we can. >> i'm looking at the scene now, we all are together, as the president comes out of church. we see sasha with him, who yesterday told him, he didn't mess up. at the other -- malia will be coming in soon. i think we're all struck at the difference in four years, as we look at them. and remembering that four years ago, at this moment, the president had just been released the nuclear codes. in the white house, they were scrambling to put toys on the beds for the girls, organizing a scavenger hunt to find their ways around. >> today, after the ceremony, they'll just be going home. it's been their home for the last four years. the president's family getting in
inner billie bush. we wanted to see him stammering and blubbering like john boehner leaving production of les miserables. he denied bribing teammates and bribing people and denied doing steroids since 2006. coincidently the last year that the statute of limitations apply. he was lying all over the place. i don't think he helped himself at all last night. i came away liking him less than i did before the interview. >> bill: gutfeld, he has got legal problems all over the place. we talked about this with our is it legal duo earlier in the week. this makes it worse. because he basically is saying, you know, i sued the times of london, for example, he won a judgment. half a million dollars. but i was lying. the story they had was right. and i did it and now people suing him. i think there is a hair person or a masseuse or somebody who said look, he did it, and he went after her, and all of this business. now he loses all of those cases. and if he didn't say anything, at least he would have a chance. >> well, you know what? he only has one option left. and that is to enter politics. clearly
-for-one cuts that come from the boehner rule for any long-term debt ceiling extension system of if we look at that, it means that in 10 to 15 years, with very little help from the democrats, we can achieve a balanced budget which is much better than even the 23- to 27 -- better than the 23 years to 27 years and obviously better than the never balancing budget obama and the democrats have proposed for the last four years. so you look at all the data out there. all the public opinion polls say that the american people think we're spending too much money. that the american people think that we are taxing too much. but the problem is that as republicans, i think this goes to what representative huelskamp just said, as republicans we have been seen as the party of big business. and we should never be the party of big business. we should be the party of individuals. the party that helps individuals have a fair share. we have a system that is unfair to small businesses, to individuals, we have a tax system that is unfair, we have a regulatory system that is unfair, and when republicans once again
the president. people on the right, people who voted against boehner's plan b and people who want a deal done. i think in the end, people who want a deal done will prevail. maybe at the last hour or three hours after the last hour, we don't know. it was quite obvious the president was trying to blow up the deal on december 31st, while biden and mcconnell were out there negotiating, the president had a pep rally in the east room in which he directly attacked both the congress and the republicans, people trying to do the deal. any who's done any negotiations know what you should have done is praise the process, not attack the people in the middle of the process. i don't think the president liked that deal, i don't think he wanted a deal. i think he'd rather have the issue and i think in this case, he'd also rather have the issue. it will be very very hard to get a serious deal done when one of the main negotiators really doesn't want any deal at all. >> we have evidence of that with this interview with john boehner where he said the president told him repeatedly, we don't have a spending problem,
obama, speaker boehner? guest: mitch mcconnell, joe biden. michelle obama is rolling her eyes or making a fence at the inaugural luncheon yesterday when obama and boehner talked behind her. lost betweenlove the two. now at this point you have but the president and boehner committing not to talk to each other about the next big spending fight. not a good sign. host: what will second obama term mean for the court? guest: a lot of big issues, and i suppose there is the possibility of another supreme court appointment, which is always a moment to read-tod litigate social issues. we will look at potentially historic rulings on affirmative action, economic issues, gay marriage, and if he goes ahead on climate change, i do not know if it will get the court, but that will be with just in extreme. i think this -- despite the fact that the president and chief justice managed twice to get through the oath of office without any mistakes of the last couple of days, you are still going to see a huge gulf between the conservative majority of the supreme court and this white house, particularly under t
connell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the seco
. with boehner, mcconnell and obama, you would be interested to see if they'll take any business. >> people that have had very public disagreements over key issues in the last several weeks or months alone. you have to wonder what the tone in that room might be. >> reporter: especially with mcconnell. it's never been a warm relationship. the president and mitch mcconnell have had exactly one meeting in the first term, one on one together. and yet mitch mcconnell might be the most important republican on capitol hill. he and vice president biden have a great relationship. >> as we watch these limousines headed to st. john's church, it's a short rooi, we expect the president to get out shortly. tell us about the inauguration speech. we remember the one four years ago. do you expect it to be a scaled-back speech this time around? >> reporter: realistic hope is probably the way to put it. the public wants -- they do know that while we may be cynical to the message of breaking the g d gridlock and the divisiveness of washington, the speech is not designed for us here in washington. it's designe
for the continued suffering of these innocent victims, the house majority and their speaker, john boehner. >> we cannot believe that this cruel knife in the back was delivered to our region. >> it is the most disgraceful action i have seen in this house in the 20 years i have been here. >> the fact is this dismissive attitude that was shown last night toward new york, new jersey, and connecticut typifies, i believe, a strain in the republican party. i can't imagine that type of indifference, that type of disregard, that cavalier attitude being shown to any other part of the country. >> well, now the house of representatives tonight has a second chance. on january 3rd the house passed a $9.7 billion bill that would help pay sandy victims' insurance claims by replenishing the national flood insurance program. today the house votes, actually tonight, on the big money, more than $50 billion in sandy aid. joining me is new york congressman michael grimm who rents areas in staten island. thank you for joining us tonight. let me show you an ad run back in 1964 by the republicans -- the democrats, rathe
from new jersey has been very vocal about sandy aid. he called out john boehner directly. i want to just ask you the question this way, sir, especially because you come from kansas. in new york and new jersey, and connecticut, where they were hit by this storm, they look at it this way. for every dollar they spend, they send to washington every year in taxes, here's what they get back, new jersey. 61 cents. connecticut, 69 cents. new york, 79 cents. in kansas, they might say look, you guys are loading off us every year. you get $1.12 for every dollar you send in. don't they deserve their money back? isn't this a chance to give it to them? >> i don't know what those numbers are but everybody is getting back more than they send in because 40 cents out of every dollar that's spent in washington, d.c., whether it's relief aid or for any other purpose, is borrowed. what we're trying to do here is make certain if we're going to spend $50 billion or $40 billion or $10 billion, it should be done in a fiscally responsible manner, especially if 80% of the aid is not going to be spent until

. >> if john boehner and mitch mcconnell think that they can come up with a plan that somehow meets their criteria that they've set for why they will -- when they will raise the debt ceiling, they are free to go ahead and try. jon: chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live on capitol hill now. how are some of the top republicans responding to president obama on this debt ceiling issue? >> reporter: well, jon, republicans are clearly uncomfortable with prominent democrats already talking about a tax increase when you consider the fiscal cliff deal raised taxes and every worker with a payroll tax hiring expiring and raised taxes on upper income americans even further, check your pay stub. a leading republican says responding to the president what's critical is getting spending under control. >> it's a compelling message saying we ned to pay the bills we've racked up. of it messes the whole point again. think of it in terms of a credit card. in you have a son or daughter who exceeds the limit, the first thing you do is rip up the card, the second thing you do is you say yo
this. but the bottom line is that our speaker, john boehner, our majority leader, eric cantor, and the minority leader, nancy pelosi, understand that we must approach a national disaster such as the superstorm together. and as a body, whether it was anita lowey, rodney frelinghuysen, chris smith, michael grimm, frank lobiondo, we as a body understood we had a job to do. the gentlewoman from new york, the ranking member of this committee, louise slaught, and i understood the responsibility. because we had people back home like mayor william acres of seaside heights, new jersey, who talked to jon runyan or perhaps sylvia pa tellow -- patello talked to her congressman about the need of the communities. one nation under god. the united states coming together at a time of extreme difficulty. and that's what we have done. we have worked well together. we have worked with the governors, governors from pennsylvania, new york, certainly governor christie of new jersey. mayor bloomberg of new york. people who got together and worked. we did wait for the president's declaration of a nati
solve this problem together and the we has to be inclusive and has to include john boehner and the house and the senate. we've got to get government to work well together and the president's the leader and he's got to provide the leadership to make it happen of the he didn't do that very well in his first term. >> steve: sure. it would be great to see four years of that. mr. card, i know you have been involved in five inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his
boehner promised peter king and other northeast lawmakers that he he would move the bill quickly of after pulling it from the floor at the last minute in the wake of the fiscal cliff vote that saw most republicans vote against the speaker right around new year's day. >> host: so, eric wasson, do they have the votes then for this next round of relief? >> guest: well, the proponents of the bill say they're confident. of course, we'd expect them to say that. but i think most likely they do. they have at least 14 republican lawmakers from the northeast, they probably have all the democrats. they just need to get, you know, some others, and i think most of the appropriations committee, you know, hal rogers is behind this bill, he crafted it. so there's no earmarks and there's no pork. so i think so. i think some of the minor amendments, stripping the couple million dollars stripped out for weather service and other people view as not sandy-related may pass, but i don't think they're viewed as killer amendments in the senate. the key amendment to look will be one from representative mick mulvan
